Happy New Year to all!
Authors note: I plan to pretty much take off the month of January, as far as blogging goes, and devote my time to serious Physical Therapy aimed at facilitating a full recovery from my recent heart surgery. And when I’m not sweating and physically pushing myself, I’ll be reviewing the FCC Technical License materials and studying to take the General License Exam within the next couple of months. Those are my immediate priorities.
That said, I’ll not be forgetting my regular readers for a minute. I plan to re-blog one or two of my older posts, plus adding some links to specific posts from other blogs I follow that I think will be of interest to you, my readers. While most of my past posts have dealt with hiking, camping and backpacking, I have started introducing some Ham radio-related posts in recent months. Many of the re-blogged links I’ll be including over the next 4-5 weeks will cover QRP (low-power Amateur Radio operation) in a SOTA (Summits On The Air) battery-powered environment — thus maintaining the hiking/climbing, off-grid aspects of Ham-radio operations, combined with emergency/public service radio ops. A little something for everyone!
